Call for Abstracts

 

Submission deadline January 16, 2022

The organizing committee of the OIS Research Conference 2022 at CERN IdeaSquare (hybrid conference) invites you to join the discussion about the role and value of open and collaborative approaches to generating and disseminating scientific research.

We invite you to join the discussion about the role and value of openness and collaboration in scientific research at the upcoming 3rd OIS Research Conference. Works both empirical and conceptual in nature are welcome, and abstracts (250-500 words in length) can be submitted to one of three tracks:

Track 1: Open and collaborative approaches along the entire scientific research process, including opportunities, challenges, and contingency factors. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • crowdfunding/crowdsourcing science and citizen science
  • open data/material sharing/re-use
  • OIS approaches to translating science into practice, science-industry relations, academic entrepreneurship
  • platforms facilitating OIS

 

Track 2: Ecosystems and organizational designs facilitating or constraining open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • institutional factors
  • local and national policies
  • intellectual property rights
  • incentive and impact measurement systems

 

Track 3: Micro-foundations of open and collaborative research approaches. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

  • scientists’ motives for engaging in OIS
  • skills and capabilities for OIS
  • attitudes and beliefs supporting or blocking OIS
  • characteristics and motives of institutional entrepreneurs

Researching OIS includes investigating whether, how, and under which conditions applying open and collaborative practices along one or more stages of the scientific research process influences novelty, efficiency, and/or the impact of scientific research, taking a balanced view that recognizes important contingency factors on the individual, organizational, and ecosystem-level.

In addition to the paper presentation sessions, the conference program includes keynotes, an OIS experimentation session, an OIS debate, and opportunities for socializing. 

Find out more about the atmosphere and session formats of the OIS Research Conference in the video below on the previous 2021 (online) conference.

The 2022 OIS Research conference will instead have a hybrid format.

Submission

The submission deadline is January 16, 2022, and submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee. Information on abstract acceptance and conference registration will be provided by February 16, 2022. Please submit your abstract via our OIS Research Conference submission system (click the button below or use the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=oisconference2022). 

Please note that:

  • we welcome abstracts from early-stage research (research proposals and ongoing projects) as well as from advanced projects.
  • participating in the conference requires either getting an abstract accepted for presentation at the OIS Research Conference 2022 or being invited to contribute in an active role as a speaker, discussant, panelist, or session facilitator.
  • the paper of the submitted abstract must not have been accepted for journal publication.

Participating in the OIS Research Conference is free of charge. The conference starts on May 11 and ends on May 13. The conference will be an in-person/online hybrid taking place at CERN IdeaSquare, Geneva with online and offline elements to enable physical and virtual contributions and participation. We expect participants to be present throughout the program. A preliminary conference program will be made available to participants upon abstract acceptance in February 2022.


We look forward to welcoming you at the 3rd OIS Research Conference! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
